Praise God, who Completes what He Begins

“By the seventh day God completed His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which he had done.”    Genesis 2:2

“I glorified You on the earth, having accomplished the work which You have given Me to do.” John 17:4

God, we give You praise for completing everything You purposed to do, from creation to dying on the cross for our sins.


Pray for Hearts to be Made Complete

“…being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”                                Philippians 1:6

“…in Him you have been made complete…”  Colossians 2:10

Jesus, thanks for Your promise to complete each person who begins a relationship with You. May students and staff enter into this relationship and gain the assurance that they do not need to strive to gain Your favor. May they rest in Your finished work on their behalf.


Pray for Hearts to Complete their Tasks

“Thus, Solomon finished the house of the Lord and the king’s palace, and successfully completed all that he had planned on doing in the house of the Lord and in his palace.” 2 Chronicles 7:11

“But I do not consider my life of any account as dear to myself, so that I may finish my course and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus.” Acts 20:24

Although this year-end looks much different than any of us could have imagined, may students, parents and staff all work well together to accomplish the remainder of their work. With Solomon and the apostle Paul as an example, may everything be finished to the best of each person’s ability.

Please pray for the students and staff of Detroit Public Schools and their Superintendent, Dr. Nikolai Vitti.

“God shapes the world by prayer. Prayers are deathless. They outlive the lives of those who utter them.”                                                                     -E.M. Bounds, 20th century American author of 9 books on prayer
